What if your house burned down or was severely damaged by a fire?
What if a hurricane hits where you live and damages your home or vehicle?
What if you're diagnosed with a major medical illness and are facing excessive leave and medical bills?
What if you need to travel long distances to tend to a sick parent or child?
Would you have the immediate funds to meet your needs at that moment?
If you answered "no", you should join the Corrections Foundation.
The Corrections Foundation assists in these scenarios and more, up to $1,500 for those who qualify and are members. We offer a maximum of $100 for non-members. Membership starts at only $2 per pay period.
We usually provide financial assistance within days of being asked.
Through membership donations of Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) officers, staff, and contractors, the Corrections Foundation is able to take care of those who work for FDC.
Your contribution also stays in Florida, is invested in Florida, and only goes back to help your co-workers in Florida.
I really appreciate the Corrections Foundation stepping in and helping me. I recently received a bad diagnosis, and the Corrections Foundation did not hesitate to step in and help me. I would recommend everyone to join this organization. It’s good to know that we never walk alone!
As the Director of the Pawsitive Direction program at Okeechobee CI, I can say with sincere gratitude that the Corrections Foundation has been incredibly helpful. Not only has the help come in the form of supplies when needed, but support and guidance, as well.
I have been a member for years and have never needed the assistance. (Thank God) However, 2 weeks ago my daughter who also works for the department and is a member had her baby 10 weeks early. She lives over 60 miles from the hospital and makes the trip everyday to see her baby. She will be out of work for a little while and received a check from the foundation for $1500. She is extremely grateful for this much needed blessing! As her mom, I just want to say Thank You for the assistance you provided to my baby girl! I’ve always been an avid supporter of the foundation but now that it’s blessed my family personally, I’m an even bigger advocate! Thank you doesn’t even begin to express the gratitude in my heart right now!
The Pups N PALS PROGRAM in Daytona Beach is fantastic. Save pups and rehabilates people. Thank you to this foundation for allowing a program like this happen and having it grow to be a recognized program in the community. The Veterans and the regular ADOPTERS have all been extremely grateful. The Office Irwin really does a great job.
